German music legends Guru Guru are celebrating 50 years as a band with a brand new studio album titled "Rotate!" It features 11 tracks that certainly keep the spirit of the original band alive, despite the recent passing of long-time band member Hans Reffert. The album begins with the successful sound experiment "Rotate!" which showcases the band's energetic output on this electronic rock piece. The album continues with the steady rhythm of "Digital Analog" as shrieking guitars and blasting horns turn up the excitement. Guru Guru solidify their stance as one of the best progressive rock bands around with the sonic displays of musicianship in the songs "Paramashivan" and "Anaconda." They wrap up their new album with the rockabilly swing of "Magic Tree" and the mystical soundscapes of "I Am A Spaceboy."
